Ben our Master

Just thinking: what does Ben do when there are no problems - is he dreaming up new scenarios, improving basic techniques, ie suggestions for improvements on the basic Sleuth (which I haven't noticed being implemented or corrected), or just taking it easy and watching the dosh rolling in :) NOT

@ Carpathia - I prefer to think of Ben more as a sock puppet.

Would have to agree with SS on the Bug issue problem (esp regarding cases) Most of it is a case of not finding PE or Yellow Notes. To many have relied on using the TAB key, to find everything for them.

If you tab to fast you may not see everything Highlighted and some cases it may not highlight at. (which is good wish more would not highlight)

If I dont have what I did to solve a case I have come to realize I missed something not that there is a bug. I usually go back and find what I have missed carefully looking.

Most current bugs or problems have to do when NEW things are added to game.

Heh, S_S - you mean, a puppet you'd like to sock :)

Also agree that it is usually YOU that have missed something.

Oh the beauty of being subbed and belonging to an agency. That way you have a friend "nosey around" and call you a dummy than just "another detective" :D

I reported a bug (or what seemed to be) about 5 days ago - but via smail rather than the 'report a bug' link. No-one has got back to me since. Is it normal to wait this long (or longer)? I would be happy even if they were just responding to say that it was my mistake and not a 'bug'. But until they do I won't know and that can make for a nervous player.....

@ Skye Sailor. I saw that copy. That's Ben deal. I can't look at cases that have been played, only ones that are held in storage. Less people tinkering with the Databases innards the better.

Honestly, Ben might take a fair while to get back to you.

If many past examples and my experience are anything to go on, I honestly believe it is impossible for the game engine to throw up anything that does not = 'real / confirmed alibi = innocent'.

@ Secret Squirrel. I appreciate your response.

elle, i don't see the problem, as it would be up to the individual whether or not to use the service. i think it'd be nice if people wanted to store cases they thought were broken in some open area. it would be another way for players to build cameraderie in a non-competitive way. personally, i do think that there is a solution to every puzzle and having this options would be a good way to learn what you've missed if you are frustrated with a case.

more of a problem for me is that ben must be busy with other projects, which makes sense, but i do wish he had another person on hand to tweak this game a bit. even a little thing, like the holiday treats, have been a huge hit with me because everything is always the same. i think changing or adding even minor elements would be appreciated. i ended my subscription because i found i wasn't coming by enough to warrant paying for the service, but i would come back as a paying member if the game had more of an active life.

hi belami, it sounds fine the way you put it - i was taking a look at the possible downside.

An open area with freedom of choice to store could be a positive addition to the game. I'd hope it would be clear who your case is going to though - just as we know who the Boards Mods are. On that topic Mercy is right in her description of one of the 'joys of being subscribed'...
